I Flickered A Little

I Flickered A Little

I flickered a little,

A little, when you arrived, 

And showed passion to me,

And gave a place to hide, 

But I remembered, 

Remembered that

I have to burn all alone; 

For I have a purpose to fulfil, 

Which I had forgotten

Under your shade,

Your shadow of love.

I have to burn, 

And burn till the end.

– Shobhna Kanwar
